I had my surgery 5/4/15. I'm now back to riding horses which is a miracle as I used to train horses for a living and haven't been able to ride for yrs. I now have 40 pounds to go to goal and I never thought it would be possible. I now have a boyfriend who is great and every day men are saying how beautiful they think I am. Thanks Dr Blackstone

Dr Blackstone is the BEST. She takes a personal interest in all her patients, is very personable and does not talk down to you. Her methods are cutting edge and dare I say she is a trailblazer. I was back to work 3 days after surgery with no ill effects.

I have a complicated Vertical Banding Gastroplasy from 1987 and have developed some issues that are weakening me to a point of barely getting thru my day. I was able to speak with Dr Blackstone along with my partner and all are questions and concerns were answered and we left feeling confident and total satisfied in the choice of the surgeon to make the repairs needed to get me back on my feet
